Description: Khop Chai Deu is a friendly way to say "Thank You", a name easy to remember. It is the place where the people meets and eats! The oldest and best located restaurant in the heart of Vientiane, and you get a taste of Lao foods or try our international dishes and make yourself at home. Come in to relax, enjoy the live music, and drink to new friendship. Khop Chai Deu has always been "The Place Where The World Meets".

This place was recommended by our hotel manager. It' s a nice place to sit, not to eat. In my opinion, a chef who throws big pieces of garlic, lime and fat on a plate and then throws a cup of salad dressing over a salad should not be allowed around food. I don't remember the price, just wanted to leave.

Kop Chai De is the best known eating and meeting place in Vientiane.

“Improvements” to the restaurant have seen it lose a lot of its charm and its expansion has not been matched by a higher quality of food or service. Nevertheless, it’s still one of the better places to spend an hour or so sipping a Beerlao: and seeing or being seen.

The food is very average, though admittedly, average priced.

What can be a nuisance is the number of touts that hang around, inside and outside, looking for victims to scam.

This pub has a few different restaurants, so depending on your mood you can go for pub-food, drinks and cocktails, Italian, or up-class dinner (each floor is a different restaurant).
I wasn't overly impressed by the Western scene, but the food was good. A place to take your Lao friends for a good night out.

The Malay Chicken Satay is awesome as is all the bbq style food.There's something for everyone; BBQ, Laos, Japanese, burgers, pizza etc and they do draught beer. Prices are pretty reasonable for what you get but the service can be either be very good or a bit poor.

Sometimes when I've ordered one dish will come followed by another ten minutes later. Admittedly I could ask for it to all come at once but should you have to request this.

All in all one of my favorite spots in town

We'd had a long, hot walk so opted to sit inside, upstairs in the airconditioning and perhaps because everyone else was outside we had a waiter who seemed to be there just to serve us. I can't remember the name of the Laos salad I chose but it was so drowned in fish sauce I really couldn't eat it and the chicken was dry. Piña Colada was the1/2 price cocktail of the day though so that helped make up for it!
